Waiting and Wanting

Waiting and Wanting

Whatever Is… Is Best –Buddha-

I love the statement and I will paraphrase, “Life becomes unnecessarily difficult only when we wish that what is were very different than how it appears to be.” I think I could be an expert in this department because so many years I couldn’t wait… couldn’t wait to fall in love, couldn’t wait to get the car, couldn’t wait to graduate, couldn’t wait and couldn’t wait some more. Also, I wanted it to be better than what is was. It is so stressful to live from these eyes of perception… always wanting life to be something different than what it is. We have all heard numerous stories of women that were devastated because they didn’t think they could have children and rather than stop living or stop connecting with children; they would adopt or move on. Often, just by letting go, they would get pregnant anyway. There is tremendous freedom in letting go… and tremendous struggle with hanging on.

What could you let go of this week that you have been holding onto?

What if you weren’t resisting your current circumstances and you paid more attention to all that is around you?

The villagers reached these “prayer rooms” by using their own private footpaths through the brush. When grass began to grow…

A Full Life

A Full Life

We have sacrificed the true message of Jesus that says know your connection to your true Father/Creator and you can have a life full of miracles. We have been taught a very misguided and misleading message that has caused us to live a miracle of being dead while we are alive. We have sacrificed a…

What is Sacred

What is Sacred

We have gone amiss by losing the sacred art of ancient rituals and symbols in our culture. It is evident that we want these rituals and symbols, however, because of the popularity of books by J. K. Rowling and Dan Brown and films such as Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones. We long…
